Imphal: As part of the year-long Golden Jubilee Celebration of Manipuri Cinema, Manipuri State Film Development Society (MSFDS) is organising a 3-day training workshop on Film Preservation and Archiving, from April 10- 12, 2021.
The purpose of the workshop is to build a pool of resource for the preservation and restoration of the cinematic heritage of Manipur. The first ever training workshop on film archiving and restoration is an initiative of MSFDS and Film Heritage Foundation, Mumbai.
Shivendra Singh Dungarpur, founder-director of Film Heritage Foundation, Mumbai and his team of experts will conduct the specialized training covering all vital aspects of film preservation – from celluloid to non-film materials like photographic and paper. Dungarpur is an award-winning filmmaker, producer and film archivist. He is also an Executive Committee member of the International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF).
